Why is this a game changer? Let’s consider some examples:
- Because dinnertime will be here sooner than you think.
- Because you always pick the slowest line at the store.
- Because you can do so much better than takeout.
- Because going to the store after work is sheer madness.
- Because you already ate last weekend’s groceries.
We could go on, but the bottom line is we get it. We get that you don’t like waiting around for your FreshDirect order. We get that when you’re hungry, you want your groceries ASAP. When we launched same-day service in select areas earlier this year, we got a huge positive response. But we knew we could go one step further by extending the cutoff until later in the day, giving you more time to shop and less time to wait.
So this month we’ve launched expanded service windows on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side in Manhattan, and select areas of Brooklyn. When you place an order by 1 PM for delivery in those areas, you’ll be able to get it that very evening. If you’re not located there, stay tuned: we’ll be rolling out expanded same-day delivery options in more locations over the coming weeks.

You won’t find a better option for same-day grocery shopping online. So if you hear us say “see you later,” “later” might be sooner than you think!
